The Mon National Party is a Mon ethnic party formerly called the Mon National Democratic Front. It contested the 1990 general elections under this name, winning in five constituencies. After the military rejected the 1990 poll results, it revoked the party’s license in 1992.
The Mon party boycotted the 2010 general elections. It contested the 2012 by-elections but failed to win any seats. It changed its name to the Mon National Party in 2014.
Its 53 candidates will contest seats in Mon, Thanintharyi and Kayin states, where a large number of Mon people live. The MNP’s objectives include establishing a federal union in which the Mon people can have greater political autonomy.
